WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?

Under the auspices of the Jaffari Community Center (JCC), the Jaffari Sports and Recreation Board (JSRB) has registered as a Group Partner for the Strides for Stroke event, a 5K Run/Walk in support of Mackenzie Health.

 

WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?

The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 7th at 8:00 am.

 

WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?

Mackenzie Health is a bed rock of support for JCC members who live in the neighbourhoods served by the hospital. In one way or another, many of us and our families have greatly benefited by the stellar medical services provided by the hospital.

By participating in the Strides for Stroke 5K Run/Walk you will be lending your support to a noble community cause, help with the hospital’s fundraising campaign and most importantly, you will have fun and feel healthy doing so! By registering as a family, you will model for your children a healthy lifestyle and giving back to your community!
